One perk of being married to an all-star basketball player? Free courtside seats. The downside? You might have to share him with a bunch of other guys on Valentine's Day.

Just ask Eva Longoria Parker!

At yesterday's Godiva Valentine's Day Partnership with the Elton John AIDS Foundation, Eva dished about the challenges of having her hubby Tony Parker play in the All-Star game on Feb. 14 and still make time for romance...

The Desperate Housewives star doesn't need fancy chocolate, jewelry or flowers...She only has one requirement for the big day. 

"As long as I'm with my husband!" she told E! News. "Which kinda sucks sometimes, 'cause Valentine's Day always falls on All-Star weekend, and he's always made the All-Stars. So I'm usually with a bunch of big sweaty guys trying to squeeze in a romantic dinner."

Eva also reveals that not only is Tony competitive on the court, he's also competitive in courting his lady.

"We both actually have competitions with who's more romantic, but he's beaten me a lot of times," Eva said of her hubby. "He's really romantic...I'm really lucky."

If Eva ever wants a sympathetic ear about her hubby's sporting schedule, she's got another famous fashionista hitched to a star athlete that she can turn to—the actress first got involved with the Elton John AIDS Foundation through the Beckhams

"When David and Victoria moved to L.A., Victoria and Eva became good friends. And she introduced us, and we got along like a house on fire," Elton John's partner, David Furnish, tells E! of how he originally began working with the Desperate Housewife.

Talk about an A-list entourage. We're sure BFFs Eva and Posh will be at Elton's annual A-list Oscar charity fete this year. And hopefully this year, Tony and David can make it too!
